Pre-Game Meal


Let’s come together to share a meal with your friends and Canadian athletes at your home.

Every Pre-Game Meal is a rare opportunity for an evening of extraordinary conversations, a chance to hear what it takes to be the best in the world and to surround yourself with excellence.

Pre-Game Meal (Toronto) hosted by: Jayna Hefford (Hockey), Korey Jarvis (Wrestling) and Crystal Emmanuel (Athletics)


Host a CAN Fund Pre-Game Meal

Your home your friends but imagine your next dinner also includes athletes who have represented Canada on the world stage!
CAN Fund is inviting you to host a Pre-Game Meal at their home this year.  The premise is simple.  You host a dinner in whatever style you prefer, sit-down, cocktail, or a themed event.  It can be as casual or as elegant as you wish.  You invite your friends to attend (6 guest minimum) and CAN Fund invites Canadian athletes to join you. Just ask your guests to make a donation to CAN Fund.

Deliciously reinventing the charity dinner! The money you raise at your CAN Fund Pre-Game Meal will
help support the 998 athletes who recently applied to CAN Fund.

It’s easy to become a host! 

Get started by filling out your host form, from there, CAN Fund will create your SAVE THE DATE for you to e-mail to your guests. You have the option to also create a host fundraising page, where your guests can donate to your Pre-Game Meal and support Canadian athletes. 

Host Detail Form

Set a fundraising goal that you would like to achieve for your Pre-Game Meal. Your guests can donate online directly to your event page so you can track your goal.  Each donation to CAN Fund is an opportunity to share in the excitement of supporting an athlete who is training to wear the Maple Leaf on the world stage. A tax receipt will be issued for every donation, and CAN Fund will share the name and story of the athlete(s) you are supporting.

A reason to celebrate

Our Canadian athletes bring an entire country together, and now you can bring them to your home. You will have the opportunity to hear firsthand their stories, the obstacles they have overcome to wear the maple leaf, the things they are most proud of and the parts of their journey that rarely get told, is truly a one of a kind experience. CAN Fund has athletes across Canada who are excited to attend.

You’ve planned your Pre-Game Meal and rallied your friends to donate to CAN Fund.  Now it’s time to celebrate your collective impact and encourage your guests to host their own Pre-Game Meals to see the number of athletes directly supported multiply.
